In keeping with the theme of this year’s Open Access Week of “Generation Open”, this Berlin event was for Earlier Career Researchers and anyone else who is young at heart!
It had a participative format that comprises:
- Moderated un-conference where the audience talks and asks questions
- Simple event theme, we picked #OpenAccess – it’s up to all of us Lightning talks that anyone can give, 5 image slides in 5 minutes
- Time to chat and mingle over a drink and something to eat
- A cool venue
